"Somewhere Out There"

Parody Song Title:

"Some Fool's Out There"

Parody Written by:

Tim Mayfield

The Lyrics

This is the TRUE story of the discovery of electricity.
Some fool's out there
Trying to fly a kite
Some fool's tied a brass key
He'll light up nice and bright

Some fool's out there
I try hard not to stare
It's so hard not to snicker
Cause he's getting soaked out there

And even though I own
An extra raincoat I could spare
With an umbrella held above
So he could dry his hair

But when the lightning crackles
And the air begins to fry
There ain't no way
I'm standing next to that
Electric guy

Not safe out there
And if you need more proof
Just look at the weather
Lightning out there
Clapping thunder too

(Stormy Break - Lightning & thunder claps)

And even though he knows
how very close the lightning falls
It seems to me he might be
Wishing for a closer call

And when the lightning starts to singe his bony frame goodbye
It might just bring me fame if
I'd pretend to be this guy

Some fool's out there
But he won't earn his due
He should have known better
Some fool out there
Left with a Kaboom!

You're a bit of a bright spark, aren't you Tim? Good stuff. 555

yes, they must have thought golf was a weirdly dangerous game before the kite-flying incident helped them figure out what had been causing all those frazzled golf dudes - funny stuff Tim - 555

SOTM - I'm picking up on Stuart's comment to suggest a follow up: "Smoke on the golf course" to that song by Rainbow. :-)

(SOTM) I only vaguely KTOS from one of those American Tail/Feivel movies. I thought you nailed the pacing as far as I could remember it. The lyrics were pretty funny, especially that "Electric guy" line. Great job, Tim! 555

(SOTM) Great job! Or ,Peter "Smoke On the Water" by Deep Pruple

(ShockOTM) I recently saw this experiment re-enacted on Mythbusters. They busted it, concluding what you have here, that Franklin would have more than likely been killed by such a stunt (that is, if it even were attempted or worked in the first place). I wonder if the old expression "Go fly a kite" originated from Franklin's work. I'll fly you some 5s, but I'm staying inside when lightning's out!

(SOTM) Ah, yes...Benny Franklin. Credited as a genius...typically, the dumbass nearly got himself killed. Oh, well, who really cares? Not me!

(SOTM) Clever title, and very clever concept.
Stuart McArthur - November 27, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) see above - and yes it is more likely that Benjamin Franklin just saw and pretended to be the electric guy rather than actually living through it himself - nice theory and great pacing, Tim

D'Oh... TJC got to my comment first. I guess it's my volt for not being current with my comments ;-)

(SOTM) See above. A clever concept well done!

Elementary school science would have been so much more fun with you teaching. And entertaining!
